A Selection Of The Best Windows Phone 7 Phones

Windows Phone 7 is Microsofts latest move to become the dominant player in the extremely competitive smartphone operating system market. Windows Mobile was quickly overtaken by other more powerful operating systems and has been shut down altogether. Windows Phone 7 has now become Microsofts primary weapon in this battle and several high-end smartphones are running this operating system. What follows is a summary of three powerful smartphones and the features they employ to showcase the Windows Phone 7 operating system.

HTC HD7 - HTC introduced this model to replace the HD2, which ran the Windows Mobile operating system. The HTC HD7 utilizes a 4.3 inch LCD screen with a cool little kick-stand built in for easy viewing of movies at a table or desk. The battery is a 3.7V 1,230 mAh, which is only rated for 6.5 hours of talk time; less time than many in its class. There is 16 GB of built in storage on this unit, and the camera is a 5 mega-pixel auto-focus camera designed for either still pictures or 720p HD video.

Samsung Omnia 7 - The Omnia 7 was introduced by Samsung as their Windows Phone 7 offering. This unit boasts a 4 inch AMOLED touch-screen display with 800 x 480 pixel resolution, which is a standard on all of the Windows Phone 7 units. This phone has the good solid feel of a substantial piece of smartphone hardware due to its metallic body and solid design. A 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 8250 chipset runs this phone and its connectivity options include GPS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. This phone also has a popular FM radio and its autofocus camera is of the 5 mega-pixel persuasion.

LG Optimus 7 - LGs Windows Phone 7 entry is similar to the Samsung, in that it offers a 1 GHz Snapdragon chipset, as well as GPS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. The major difference lies in the AMOLED screen size which is a bit smaller at 3.8 inches. This phone body has a metal back plate rather than an all metal body, but the back plate still gives the phone a good feel. It is also quite slim. The Optimus 7 has a 5 mega-pixel autofocus camera capable of HD recording as well.

Since Windows Phone 7 smartphones are required to have certain features as standard, manufacturers will have a difficult time differentiating themselves and will have to rely heavily on aesthetics and design to win customers. With so many great smartphones available to run Windows Phone 7, it should not take long for Microsoft to become one of the strongest operating systems on the market.
